Gloucester Face Shield Project
Gloucester Education Foundation has organized an effort to manufacture face shields and provide them for free to protect local front line workers against the coronavirus.
Teachers Amy Donnelly and Dave Brown at O’Maley Innovation Middle School, and Kurt Lichtenwald, Tim Quinn and John Barry at Gloucester High School are making 100 shields per day using 3-D printers in the school STEM and engineering labs. Gloucester High School engineering program graduates have recently joined in the effort and are volunteering their time to help.
Thanks to our incredible teachers and volunteers, over 500 shields have been distributed to local agencies and families, free of charge. Often those delivering the shields are met with tears of relief and gratitude from the recipient.
To support purchase of supplies and equipment for the project, please consider making a donation on our GoFundMe Campaign

Addison Gilbert Hospital, Gloucester Healthcare, Seacoast Nursing Home, SeniorCare, Den-Mar Health, The Open Door, Blackburn Primary Care, Harvard Vanguard, Willow Rest, Bayview Post Office, Seasons of Danvers, Gloucester Police Department, New England Center for the Deaf and more.
